The San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to meet in the postseason for the first time ever. A first for this great baseball rivalry.

The Giants are the underdog at home in this NLDS Game 1 matchup, but let’s explore a few prop bets for this exciting game.

Here are three prop bets for NLDS Game 1, odds courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

Logan Webb OVER 5.5 strikeouts (-115)

Logan Webb has had a career year so far for the Giants going 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA in 27 games. He also has shown an ability to rack up strikeouts, with 158 strikeouts in 148 ⅓ innings pitched.

Webb faced the Dodgers three times this season and stuck out at least five in every appearance. Webb has pitched even better at home in San Francisco, allowing just a .213 average against and striking out 86 batters in 73 ⅓ innings.

Justin Turner to Hit a Home Run (+445)

Turner hit a dinger in the NL Wild Card Game off Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals, and I like him to go deep again in this one with a +445 value.

Turner has homered 13 times in 73 career postseason games, so he doesn’t shy away from the occasion, and his home run stroke picked up in September, hitting five home runs in the final month.

Mike Yastrzemski to Get a Hit (-125)

If this matchup wasn’t historical enough, we get to see a Yastrzemski in the playoffs for the first time since 1975, when Carl Yastrzemski’s Boston Red Sox faced the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series.

Yastrzemski has had success against Dodgers’ starter Walker Buehler in the past, going 6-for-20 against the Ace from Los Angeles.

Yastrzemski should be in the lineup tonight, as the usually-platooned lefty bat will be facing a righty on the mound.
